    A total of 4,000 Nigerian citizens are still stranded in Ukraine.

    "There have been unfortunate reports (that) Ukrainian police and security personnel are refusing to let Nigerians board buses and trains" to Poland, said Nigerian presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu.

    A video that circulated on Social media over the weekend, showed some Nigerian students sharing their plight.

    Mr Shehu said there were claims that Polish officials had refused Nigerian nationals entry to Poland.

    "It is important that everyone is treated with dignity and without favour," he stressed.

    They are not Ukrainians, but Nigerians. They can go to Russia too if they are stuck, but it seems this issue was solved after this scandal. It's not their war, I fully understand them for running away. Hope they will not end up in some tent in the wintertime.

    Okay, I think I might have some idea what is behind all those abandoned Russian convoys

    We have bunch Russian soldiers which have:

    - Not been told that they are going to war

    - Not been provided with air cover

    - Not been provided with AA umbrella

    - Not been provided with artillery support

    - Only given obsolete vehicles

    - Not been allowed to defend themselves in case they encounter enemies and are expected to just march to their own execution


    So how do you avoid getting killed for nothing without deserting or surrendering?

    That's right, you abandon your vehicle and say that it ran out of gas!!!



    It's a perfect solution, there will still be plenty of idiots who will blindly stroll to their own slaughter without question but intelligent ones will immediately realize that something is very fishy and will figure out how to stay alive and remain free


    Nobody with more than two brain cells would agree to get himself killed just so the enemy can live (and especially so they could satisfy whims of some senile delusional idiots in Moscow who think that Ukrainians are not a horde of homicidal Nazis)

    And considering that Russian officers know what kind shitshow their own military is (logistics including) they will not make a fuss over something that is perfectly expected to happen

    "Not their war"? Damn right its not their war. Not only that they are Ukraines guests. Every effort should have been made to facilitate their safe departure, not this disgusting and appalling behavior.

    I thought it was artillery that was the culprit? Most of them are destroyed. Or at least, first forward vehicles.

    - Not been told that they are going to war

    That's what POW's always say, how can you not know there's an active war when there are planes and artillery shells flying.

    - Not been provided with air cover

    So it seems

    - Not been provided with artillery support

    We don't know, but most likely true.

    - Only given obsolete vehicles

    Disagree, plenty of good equipment got abandoned too. Soldiers are in nice gear as well, all in new uniforms and helmets.

    - Not been allowed to defend themselves in case they encounter enemies and are expected to just march to their own execution

    We don't know, but they did shoot up Ukrainian convoys


    So how do you avoid getting killed for nothing without deserting or surrendering?

    That's right, you abandon your vehicle and say that it ran out of gas!!!

    Where do you go from there? You are on the foot in the enemy territory


    It's a perfect solution, there will still be plenty of idiots who will blindly stroll to their own slaughter without question but intelligent ones will immediately realize that something is very fishy and will figure out how to stay alive and remain free

    Logistics are usually counter to the last drop of fuel, I don't think anyone can claim that their tank ran out of this or that without proof. Also, good luck staying free if you are cought deserted or if you are caught by Ukrainians.


    Nobody with more than two brain cells would agree to get himself killed just so the enemy can live

    True

    And considering that Russian officers know what kind shitshow their own military is (logistics including) they will not make a fuss over something that is perfectly expected to happen
    Sorry, don't understand this one at all. It wasn't even half bad even during first chechen war?

    Wouldn't be quick to blame only Ukraine in this, apparently, it was Poland who refused to accept them. They had to shake the beehive.

    People think wars are won on Twitter and CNN.

    That propaganda is for western masses and trying to convince morons in Russia and Serbia who are either supporters of the west (wanting their own destruction) or nazi sympathizers.

    Reality is quite a lot different.

    It's just annoying as shit that people post the same garbage over and over again. Ukrainian propaganda.

    I haven't heard about this, if true the Russian soldiers should just stop fighting until they can properly act.

    That is the price for minimizing civilian deaths. It is also clear that every apartment block is not a Banderite nest sitting in ambush.
    The Kiev regime floats on a thin crust of enforcers in central and eastern Ukraine. It has no depth. All the whiners in this thread
    expect Russia to antagonize the population for some preconceived vision of video game warfare. Russia is playing it very smart and
    the Banderite vermin is folding. Hard.

    Exactly. Propaganda can boost your moral or demoralize you. This does matter. But in order something to count has to  reflect to the ground, else it doesn't matter.

    Regarding the situation on the ground, the image I have is very unclear, I can sum my main thoughts:

    -Russia moved in many fronts, very quickly the first 2-3 days

    -Then progress stall, ground wise, but why or what is not clear

    -Russia can keep this situation for years on end. Did it in Syria, certainly can do it in this theater. Hang on, this might take time. This has an advantage, Europeans will use to it

    -The regime wants to hang on, resists and no cracks yet. This is not bad. A deal to save the regime and give everything else, can be reached

    -Population is reluctant to support Russia. My guess is that most supporters feel that Russia sooner or later will leave again

    -Russia is not going for manhunt of the main figures of the regime. Reason to me unknown

    -West Ukraine remains untouched. Americans might attempt a Syria style illegal occupation, which would lead to half victory at best

    -The encirclement on the East should complete before EOW, not sure if this would be enough

    -As long as USA can only influence nato powers and direct puppets, situation is manageable economically

    The population of the regime occupied cities is not going to run onto the streets to greet the Russian forces because it will be
    attacked by Banderites. People outside of Ukraine think it is some sort of normal country. It is a terror state and that has been
    clear since 2014. The trainloads of goons sent to Crimea should be a clue but people here ignore it completely. In Kharkov these
    goons succeeded in beating down dissent. For the last 8 years people have been living in fear.

    As Russian forces suppress the Banderites installed in every population center do not expect the locals to take up arms against
    Russia. That is pure NATzO propaganda.

    My wife made a good point. She said that Russia needs to start funding media that portrays to be Indian media, Chinese media, etc. Much how the US does it. People will know it's Russian funded BUT if it'd catered to the population of said region/country, then people will be inclined to watch it.

    That is something Russia needs to drastically do.

    This is a pro-Russian TG channel and posted T-90 abandoned to civilians as well (most likely same tank as HMG is missing). I wish I would know how this is possible.

    Not if true or not taken from an article today. On potential reason behind the letters on Russian vehicles.

    The Letter “V” represents the Russian Marines

    The Letter “Z” represents units in the Eastern Military District

    The Letter “Z” in a square represents the Southern Military District (Crimea)

    The Letter “O” represents units from Belarus

    The Letter “X” represents the forces of Ramzan Kadyrov, the Putin installed warlord of Russia’s Chechnya region.

    The Letter “A” represents Russian Special Forces(SSO) like Spetznaz in its various operational units.
